There are many outbound airport options from the UK if you are willing to factor in a stop. However, to travel effortlessly you will want to fly direct from either London Heathrow or Manchester. The direct route from Manchester to Singapore is operated by Singapore Airlines. From Heathrow, you can pick from multiple daily flights from Singapore Airlines, British Airways or a single daily flight from Qantas.

Both Singapore Airlines and British Airways conduct an exceptional, highly rated service and come recommended by our team of business travel experts. However, it is Singapore Airlines that consistently top global rankings for both business and first class cabins. At Your Travel Corporate we have longstanding relationships with both airlines and help our existing clients manage their HighFlyer and On Business loyalty points.
